Quote: OAKLAND, Calif. -- Officials say a Southwest Airlines plane returned to Oakland International Airport just after takeoff after a smell was reported in the cabin and a flight attendant felt sick.
Apparently they were headed for BUR. Anyone have any more info?

It was a 737-700 with 139 pax on. The FA stated she was Nausious and Light Headed. CA All pax okay. A/C Is out of service being investigated however the Smell has not been located yet. Newscaster in OAK said the CA stated the smell could of been something as simple as coffee being spilled on the burners but for the safety of everyone, decided to return to OAK
